Re: external dvd writer

You would be able to boot from the external drive but you will not be able to run an operating system from it. It would allow you to install another operating system if that is what you mean? If i understand you correctly though, you would like to say perhaps, have windows xp on your laptop and maybe run windows vista on your external? Maybe get to choose which one to run. This is not possible. Sorry. I hope this helps!

How to enable Secondary IDE in NEC VERSA M400

I presume you have bought a secondary hard drive and want to fit it to your laptop.
Firstly fit the new drive, it then needs to be initialised, this can be done by running Control Pane, select Administrative tools, select Computer Management. Run Discmanagement and find the new hard drive, initialise it and format it.
That should solve your problem.

External DVD writer in Compaq V3424TU notebook

It is very simple to install a new internal DVD/RW. There is only one screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the module in. Remove that screw, slide the old unit out, and insert a new rom. Don't forget to replace the retaining screw.

Hope this will solve your problem, and please feel free to rate this advice.

Good luck

if you want to get more sound from your laptop you need to buy external speakers. To get the best result when you are shopping for speakers look for some that take an external power source (AC adaptor that plugs into the wall)
